Arts Northern Rivers, one of the Regional Arts Development Organisations in the network Arts Upper Hunter belongs to, has launched a crowdfunding campaign seeking support to assist in the recovery from the catastrophic 2022 floods across the Northern Rivers region.

The creative sector across the entire region has collectively suffered untold losses: galleries losing entire collections, studios, equipment, and artworks in ruin, and livelihoods in freefall. Along with this, Arts Northern Rivers also have completely lost their office to the floods. Unfortunately, like many across the region, the not-for-profit organisation is not insured for floods. With insurance premiums beginning at $30,000 per annum, this is simply an unattainable cost for most across the arts sector.
With your support, they can recover from the losses through this rapid funding support to provide lifelines in recovering and maintaining careers, incomes and livelihoods in unprecedented times.
